Ferris Bueller: “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
Last week I took a step towards relaxation. I carved out Saturday afternoon to visit the Salt Cave in Minneapolis. I had no idea what I would be doing there, or it would be with, or if it would even work.
Place: the front room just looks like a basic store front, then you head downstairs to enter the cave.
The Cave: Salt on the floor, salt blocks as a wall, salt released in the air, zero gravity chairs, soft lighting, and the sounds of the ocean.
People: I was alone. Someone greeted me, made sure I was settled in the cave alright, and dimmed the lights. The light was on some kind of timer, because my hour of relaxation was up when the lights became brighter.
Again? Definitely. This would be a great gift, or event to do before or after a life change such as a wedding, baby, illness, or loss. If someone in your life wants to get healthier but cannot exercise for some reason, I would recommend a session to help them cut out the distraction of life.
How do you relax?
Could you sit in a room and breathe for an hour without a distraction?
